"Veterans First" Volunteers Serve Those Who Have Served Us All

In a typical project, last year Veterans First helped out a disabled vet who relies on a wheelchair. The floors in his home needed repairs to correct safety hazards, so VF members did the job using plywood, vinyl and carpeting donated by our business community. For more info on projects and programs, visit their website at http://veteransfirstinc.org/.

“The nation which forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten.” That is the motto and creed of Richmond’s own Veterans First, Inc., founded two years ago by Ms. Hank Mitchell and her significant other. Mitchell serves as the chapter’s treasurer and was willing to act as spokesperson when WRIR’s news department caught up with her on Memorial Day, just before the ceremony at Virginia’s War Memorial.
